The Minnesota chapter of Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) will join Somali Muslim leaders at a news conference today in Hastings, MN, to call on the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate allegations of anti-Muslim bias in the rejection of a proposed Islamic cemetery in Castle Rock Township.
What they’re not telling you is that Muslims don’t use caskets to bury their dead, so rotting bodies wrapped in sheets getting into the water supply is one of the main reasons people don’t want dead Muslims in their neighborhoods.
MPR News Muslim community leaders will demand the U.S. Department of Justice Monday to investigate allegations of religious discrimination after Dakota County’s Castle Rock Township rejected a proposal for a Muslim cemetery.
In August last year, the Castle Rock Township board rejected an application from the land owner for the proposed cemetery. The board expressed concerns of potential loss of a “lot of tax base” and that the property “would not be open to the public for burials,” according to minutes from the board’s meeting on Aug. 11, 2014.
Al Maghfirah Cemetery Association later purchased the property and sent another application to the board. The local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) said the board rejected a review the application.
“A cemetery, at the time of the applications, was a permitted use in the zoning area in question and the Castle Rock Planning Commission had recommended that the board approve the conditional use permit with certain conditions,” CAIR-MN said in a statement. “The cemetery association met all of the conditions set by the planning commission.”
Al Maghfirah Cemetery Association has since filed a lawsuit in Dakota County District Court. Motions for summary judgement on the lawsuit will be held on Tuesday morning. “It is truly a sad day when Minnesota Muslims are denied their final resting place simply because of their faith,” Jaylani Hussein, executive director of CAIR-MN, said in the statement.
